A Peek At Our Week


We’ve been so busy ever since school started! We are learning more about blogging so that we can start our own individual student blogs. We plan to have them set up in time to participate in the Student Blogging Challenge in September.

Here are pictures showing a few of the things we did last week. Students will be writing separate blog posts to explain about what we learned from each of these activities.

We had our first Mystery Skype of the year. For the fourth year in a row, our first Mystery Skype partner was Mr. Haney’s class!


In math, we worked on ordering and comparing decimals. We played Aerobic Decimals to show decimals in expanded and standard notation.


We had our weekly Poetry Open Mic, where students shared both original and published poetry. We discussed the theme of each poem we heard.


We learned about the Peace Crane Project. We read the story Sadako’s Paper Cranes and Lessons of Peace on traditional Japanese story cards called kamishibai. Then we learned about how to fold origami cranes. We will be exchanging cranes with a school in India for the 2014 International Day of Peace.


We learned about blogging and how to write thoughtful comments by doing paper blogging with our About Me pages. Soon we’ll be writing these pages online!
